Following a written assessment or mock exam I always expect students to look back over what they did under exam conditions and re-draft it.
Asking students to do this without any input first is futile.
I have found this tool be a simple but effective tool to fill gaps and address issues.
- Mark papers. Make a list of common errors.
- Talk students through list of common errors – I do this the old fashioned way with a pen and a whiteboard but you could prepare slides, especially when planning for a team.
- Create a series of sentences full of the common errors you have identified.
- Students start by completing the ‘fix it’ column.
- I move around the room supporting as required.
- Once students have successfully corrected each sentence they ‘move up’ by extending the sentence.
- Students should now feel confident to look back over their own work.
- Ask them to highlight any incorrect sentences.
- Fix it.
- Move up!
Really simple and quick to produce!
